Microsoft's 2014 Security Predictions
Microsoft Joins Fido Alliance Board
Microsoft Launches Cloud OS Network
Nokia Working on Android Phone?
Patch Tuesday Fixes One Zero-Day
With a little help from its employees, Microsoft is giving the security world a sneak peak of potentially the biggest threats in 2014. But it could just as easily be the 2013 list, or even the list for 2015.
Redmond believes Fido, short for Fast Identity Online, could help us all move beyond passwords. The industry group is working to standardize authentication and make passwords less essential.
It's an archipelago of clouds. Microsoft's Cloud OS Network is the name for a global consortium of more than two dozen Microsoft-validated cloud service providers that use its cloud platform.
Still locked in its smartphone partnership with Microsoft, Finland-based Nokia seems to be branching out to devices powered by the world's leading operating system, Google's Android.
Microsoft rolled out 11 security bulletins in the final Patch Tuesday of 2013 -- five critical, six important fixing 24 vulnerabilities. Redmond issued 106 bulletins in 2013, up 22 percent from 2012.
